Kosher meat shortage since Agriprocessors closed

POSTVILLE (KWWL) -- Since Agriprocessors closed Kosher butcher shops across the country have been struggling with meat and chicken shortages. Other processors have been swamped with orders and are either boosting the amount of meat they produce or refusing to take new clients. Some consumers are paying up to 40 percent more for the same meat.

Tuesday the new owner of the building, Hershey Friedman said this shortage is one of many reasons Agri Star must get up and running in Postville as soon as possible

"I travel a lot and I was just in Vegas last week, and a lot of people recognize me and they said, when will we have your beef, your meat, your hot dogs? We don't have any!" Friedman said.
